Hi to everyone at Canyon Lake Texas.

This is a new Blog spot aimed at informing people who live out here in paradise exactly what is going on around town, Written by the people for the people of Canyon Lake. Anything is open for discussion - please keep it clean though remember this is open to all ages. Lets start with the thing that is starting to bother me most - the proliferation of corporate entities into small towns.

We are becoming used to seeing the same standardised logos in big cities, so that it doesn't matter anymore whether you are in Rome, Dallas or Moscow you will always be able to see golden arches, but do we really want it in our villages too.

So what can we do about it? The truth is nothing at all - we cant stop them. We have only one power and that is simply shop local. find you locally owned Burger Bar or Pizza joint, or beer hall or whatever. Stay away from the boring corporate entity and you will find two things happen, first you get a better burger and second local business survives.

Let me know what you think on this or any other issues and try to tell as many people as possible to use this blog it is a small effort at keeping our community real.
